§ 58. Dr. Stross
asked the Minister of Labour whether the claim for an increase in pay of the entry grade of factory inspectors, class II, submitted to him on 6th July, 1954, has been settled; and whether he will consider applying works group scales to this grade so as to ensure the entry of technically qualified people.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
An offer was made but was rejected by the association concerned. Works group scales would not be appropriate but a revision of the scales is now being undertaken in the light of the findings of the Royal Commission on the Civil Service.
